Renee CourtneyI just got the sad news, I just spoke to you on here not too long ago, and I'm so glad I had a chance to catch up with you and say hello again. You were an awesome guy to work for, super layed back and had a great sence of humor. I remember when I came back from having surgery you were worried about me coming back too soon and doing too much. You really cared about people in your life, not just your close friends, but also your employees as well as aquaintences. I'm glad that I had the oppornity to know a genuine person like you. There is nothing that I can recall about my time spent at Reep Graphics that doesn't make me smile. I'm sorry you had to go through everything you did, but you couldn't have done it with more grace. Your family will be in my heart and on my mind. Rest in peace Bob.
